. the obama administration under heavy criticism and scrutiny after botching the website's launch on october 1st says the site is better. much better. senior white house correspondent brianna keilar at the white house with more on this. good morning. >> good morning to you, carol. hhs officials say that over the course of the last couple months, there have been more than 400 fixes to healthcare.gov. at this point the capacity is at 50,000 users at a time being able to access the website and they have response rates down to less than a second. if folks go on the website, things should be moving a little more quickly. of course it's not just what consumers, people who are going on the website see that matters here, it's also insurers who take information from consumers and enroll them into insurance plans and there's still issues there it appears. a spokesman for the industry group that represents insurance companies saying there's still a number of problems with the back-end systems. insurers are still getting enrollment files that have dupe plative and have missing or inactive information and

lawyers. nearly all pro-amnesty. so even if the obama administration can't officially change immigration policy, these lawyers can help illegal immigrants stay in the country regardless of the law. joining us now is the author of that report, former d. o.j. attorney and media contributor, jay christian adams. good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. >> you've got to admit, i know you're on the other side, but the obama administration are brilliant in getting around the rules. >> yeah, they know how to use power. if you don't like a certain law, bring in people who don't like it either. this administration is not well-known for faithfully executing the law. what they have done dhs is brought in a swarm of new young lawyers, permanent civil service lawyers who have a long history at open borders groups, at pro-amnesty groups, at helping foreigners stay in the united states. now that they're at dhs, they can impose these ideas, these ideologies, these policies regardless of what congress does or does not do. >> we've got some of the details. you had written a column on this and you deta
" fresh off from my sunday turkey chili. the obama administration's deadline to have a better functioning healthcare.gov for the vast majority of consumers has come and gone and the administration is claiming success. >> the hom binbottom line, healthcare.gov is night and day. >> that was a low bar. >> he effectively gave itself a pass after saying 400 bug fixes and software improvements and the site is working more than 90% of the time. the site was stable only about 43% of the time. administration officials say healthcare.gov can handle 50,000 users at a time in at least 800,000 users a day. to put that in perspective, a year ago, amazon.com recorded 35 million user visits in a single day. they did not blame anyone by name. it was critical of the management team led by kathleen sebelius. >> our assessment identified weaknesses in how the project was being managed. slow decision making. the private sector. >> they echoed the indictment of government claiming that the team is operating with private sector velocity and effectiveness. whether it was intended or not, that indictment of gover

before obama care starts performing the way the administration promised it would. >> i think it is just a fact, and it may take until 2017 when this president leaves office, you will see almost every state in this country running your own exchanges and expanding medicaid and i think it will work really well then. >> karl rove, former senior adviser to president george w. bush. we look forward to that, greg, 2017 within karl, he is taking about medicaid, not the entire law, but there is a whole lot of people going under the medicaid rolls under this law right now. >> far more than anticipated. when you look at the relationship, they look for every one person added to medicaid, one person added to the private insurance market and it is not working out at all. there are a heck after lot more people added. for example, in oregon, 52,000 added to medicaid and zero added to private insurance. this is happy talk. this is looking super excited, but it was happy talk. you just wait. if we pass this law, we have completely screwed up its implementation the last three years. wait three more years
up to 50,000 people at the same time. the obama administration also says the site is stable more than 90% of the time. however, according to providers, healthercare.gov is far from perfect. the "new york times" reporting insurance companies are still not receiving all the information about the individuals who signed up for coverage through the exchanges creating a logistical nightmare for insurers. former adviser to president obama insists obama care will be viewed as a success even if it doesn't happen until after the president is out of office. >> this program was designed to be implemented by the states and in most of the states that's running their exchanges it's going quite well. you talk about medicaid extension. it's a fact and it may take 2017 when this president leaves office you'll see almost every state in this country running their own exchanges and expanding medicaid. let's fast forward to the state of the union, months afterwards. economy continuing to strengthen. i think the president's numbers will recover and people's confidence will recover. >> then, of course, chuck
marks the second day since the healthcare.gov website overhaul was completed. an obama administration officials say it's working, quote unquote, smoothly for the vast majority of users. >> some good news. they're calling it night and day compared to two months ago when it rolled out and was plagued with those massive technical problems. now they say the response time has been lowered to one second. >> they've lowered the error rate to below 1% and 50,000 users can be online at the same time now. >> hmm. all right. if black friday wasn't good enough for you, cyber monday is in full swing. >> another shot. get your shopping done. >> beats a mall every time. >> it does indeed. cyber monday is here. and that's why millions of people are going online today to catch internet only deals that they couldn't get in stores during black friday. >> some retailers so eger to boost sales they're extending discounts through to friday, calling it cyber week. any opportunity. >> we just want your money. >> how far you want to give it. we'll extend it through till march. shoppers can get at the moment a
thoughts on this. what the obama administration is calling enrollment surge. pleased that 25,000 people signed up for obamacare in the first 48 hours. you balance that against the fact that overall 5.6 million have had their insurance cancelled. but, anyway, they are at least pleased with the 29,000. >> you know, the administration likes to say that they are transparent. but what does 29,000 enrollees really mean. we don't know. >> even if they were enrollees start to finish and all paid up for the insurance company, is that a good number. >> again, i would say we don't know, yet. we don't know. we have had testimony in congress on capitol hill saying that the backup of this program is not working. >> is it finished? do you know if it's even finished? i hear reports it's not finished. >> we don't know. now we are hearing reports of some temporary payment plans to insurance companies. imagine, this we don't have income verification systems in place because the president delayed that portion of the law. we don't have the ability to say to insurance companies this person is eligible for su
of the question that the obama administration could pace the worst case scenario on january 1 -- the number of uninsured american goes up. pathetic. we want you to join the conversation. log onto our facebook page. we hope you will share thoughts on the program. with reaction here in studio, author, attorney david limbaugh and forbes senior political contributor left wing nut job rick unger. >> here we go. >> i say it affectionately. nobody wants your law. >> nobody wants it because the whole thing is predicated on a lie. false promises. predicated on one lie after another. where is anybody in your party to join and say this is not right, this is a bait and a switch. the american people deserve better. where are the democrats? >> let's get something straight. at least 38% by your own graphic want my law. >> that's a significant -- >> i hear you. but a few weeks ago it was different. how can you be surprised the american people is freaking out when all any of us do is talk about the law with with most people criticizing it. >> you're a rich democrat, a limousine liberal. first of all, the pr
aircraft will not. and the obama administration is making clear, it rejects china's declaration of the air defense identification zone. >> this is a noaa acceptance of china's requirements. >> reporter: the u.s. insists it will continue flying military aircraft through the chinese zone and has begun a long-plan deployment of advance p8 reconnaissance aircraft to japan that can carry torpedos, missiles, bombs and mines. the u.s. is already calling on china not to establish yet another restriction zone and biden arrives in beijing on wednesday to talk to chinese leaders about all of this. michaela? >> thank you for that. >>> let's take a look at the other headlines, beginning with breaking news. firefighters are battling a massive eight-alarm fire in boston. it engulfed a five-story commercial building in the innovation district. the building was reportedly being renovated. there are some reports that the fire got so intense, crews were ordered out of the building. no word on whether anyone was inside when the fire broke out. so far, no reports of injuries. >>> a public health alert in hong
for the obama administration, but if it had gone the other way, imagine what we're looking at for costs that were $2400 more than projected. what do you think they would be saying? >> would they be on the hook for it, absolutely. no one would say we don't know if this is obama care or not. >> clearly i think obama care is part of the story, the downturn is part of the story. the downturn can't be all. i heard people saying people are out of work. that's true but they have been out of work, the downturn was 2009. let's imagine ten million people lose their jobs, we expect to fall off in spending. but the economy is certainly better today than it was in 2009, so -- >> i want to put dollars and cents to this. this is the difference in the cbo projected savings. they're projects $222 billion in a year from medicare and medicaid from this slowing of health care costs. the sequester is $87.9, and the cuts to food stamps is $23.8 billion. >>> i have been on twitter all day about this, they can't find a single positive thing to say about the law. literally it could bring people's health care co
commitment has never been stronger. >>> obama care can't succeed without them, and that's why president obama is hosting a youth summit this afternoon. the administration says healthcare.gov is vastly improved, now working more than 90% of the time and able to support at least 800,000 users per day. on monday, as we've been reporting, the site had a million visitors. but even with these improvements, what are the chances the administration reaches its goal of seven million americans enrolled by the end of march? take a look at the math. in october, 27,000 americans signed up on the federal exchange. in the month of november, 100,000 people. even if, let's say, they quadruple november's numbers in december, that's another 400,000 enrollments. so under that scenario, less than a million people will have enrolled in the first three months, leaving only three months left to get to the goal of seven million. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist and msnbc policy annual list ezra klein from whom we steal these kinds of numbers. ezra, good morning. >> good morning. >> what are the chances r
are definitely looking out for you. >>> breaking tonight in the middle of a two-day debate over the obama care website, how well it is working and whether we should trust the administration's claims, one top republican senator now levels an explosive accusation. welcome to kwoez kelly. i'm megyn kelly. as the obama administration say it is website is greatly improved new reports point the to a major flaw. the part of the system that's supposed to deliver customer information to insurance companies, you log in your information and they deliver it to the insurance companies to get you insurance -- still doesn't work. that mean s many people may not be able to get coverage and others may think they have it and will find out at
signed an open letter asking the obama administration and congress to rein in government surveillance. for more, let's go out to san francisco. cnn's dan simon is standing by with the latest. why did these technology companies write this letter right now? >> wolf, the most important thing for any company to have whether you're selling a product or providing a service is the trust of your customers. and clearly, these technology companies, the biggest ones on the planet, facebook, google, apple, microsoft, et cetera, are worried about a possible erosion of trust among its users after these nsa disclosures became public and edward snowden became a household name. they have called on the government and the president to show some leadership and provide restraint when it comes to surveillance and written this open letter. it reads in part "the balance in many countries has tipped too far in favor of the state and away from the rights of the individual." wolf, this united and extraordinary show of support among these technology companies really shows that they are deeply concerned about use
with the rollout? >> so basically the obama administration is transitioning from this period in which it's trying to get the technical side of things to working to actually selling the law itself, which at this point is still a major task. the law is definitely going to disrupt health insurance in both positive ways and for some, some negative ways. so basically the administration is basically hoping to change the political tide, change the message that the public is hearing through this nonstop speaking tour all the way up through christmas. >> so the biggest challenge certainly for the administration has been in states that are run by republican governors. there's been a sabotage campaign or obstruction campaign. we do have states where they're running their own exchanges and seen success, certainly in kentucky. we talked with john yarmuth about that and it's startling when you compare his state and the state of mississippi where the state insurance commissioner set up an exchange only to have it shut down by the state's governor. so was this a brazen act of just spite, as it seems, for doing t
in the middle of the field right now? >> i think the obama administration should be glad it appears to be first and ten again. it's no longer third and 35. we're a long way from 109 yard field goal return. look, i think you summed it up quite well. the users experience on the front end is greatly enhanced for most people that are using it. i never get tired of watching that clip by the way. >> we're going to keep playing the clip for you. >> god bless you. the front end is in a much better state. there's two things that continue to be worrisome for the administration. one is identification verification, which is obviously crucially important in terms of subsidies you qualify for. equally important is the back end form, 834 form, which is transmitted to the insurance company which actually is where enrollment happens. if for some reason the insurance company isn't get all the data it needs from that form, a person isn't enrolled. look, the good news is the website is much improved. the test, obviously, will come in the next couple of weeks as people who are looking to ensure that they are insure
and unafraid. greta goes on the record right now. >>> think about this. do you care what the obama administration believes about its own website? or do you want the facts? >> the president believes that the site has been significantly improved. >> unfortunately, as people enroll, i think there's going to be a lot of negative surprises. >> the administration has hit the big benchmarks they set out. 50,000 people at one time. 800,000 people a day. >> the system that transfer data to the insurance companies and takes care of the payments is not working yet. >> it is certainly working reasonably well. >> from what we know from the anecdotal evidence so far, a lot of people are going to be extremely disappointed. >> i don't care if you're for it or against it, republican or democrat. we should not tolerate the sheer level of incompetence securing this site. >> yes. we have to fix it. we should be working together to fix it. >> it sounds like you didn't meet the deadline. people are going on, they're still getting the same error messages they got three days ago. >> i think you're confusi
? so often he's seen as the most effective person for the obama administration but may be able to push the traffic to the website. >> tamron, he's going to be the primary salesman, may not be the chief person every day between now and december 23rd but the white house is putting him out today. we're going to see him on thursday with chris matthews in an interview he'll have with hard ball and touting individual components of the health care law. for those covering us, a lot of this isn't anything new, but they'll be listing and trying to move beyond and turning the page for the website. he'll talk about from now on insurers cannot deny people with preexisting. he'll be talking about there's a cap on out-of-pocket expenses and whole host of other protections in the law that weren't in -- weren't part of the health insurance equation before the law passed. it's going to be getting down to the basics and something they weren't able to do because the website wasn't working for two months. >> they know now with the president coming out today and other events planned nationally, you're going
this afternoon. >> president obama will kick off the administration's new push to promote obama care during a white house event today. that is scheduled to start around 2:30 pm eastern. of course, cnn will bring it to you live. d" [ male announcer ] this is jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine.

john cornyn accused the obama administration of lying on a number of issues including the benghazi raid and obama care. >> i think the current administration has taken lying to a new level. the willingness to mislead people or provide them just demonstrably false information and expect to move on. we've seen that most recently in the health care debate over if you like what you have you can keep it. something we can go back to 2010 and demonstrate that the department of health and human services knew was false. >> jim, he's running for re-election next year. >> is that an excuse. >> a lot of democrats running in the south and i think you guys have the story on this, a lot of democratic senators running in the south next year are hearing that over and over again and will have a receptive audience. what cornyn said a lot of swing voters in the south believe. >> if i'm in the south and a democrat i'm worried about the ramifications of obama care. that's what they are picking up in their andy poling. you see these democrats who felt safe a month ago who feel they can lose. we were talking e

pleased with the kind of response he's been getting from the obama administration about security. and depending on where you look, congressman, you know, people on the right to some extent say there was never even any thought to getting security in there. and people on the left say, you know, when i had a kid, should i have gotten rid of my kid when i saw a few glitches? no, you fix the glitches. it's a wide spectrum. what wept into the planning for security? >> well, unfortunately, not much. this isn't about wanting the site to fail itself. you're pushing people. people have lost their health care. they need to be able to access this site in order to get on and get a policy by january. so that's our concern. and what you've done is you've opened them up to a level of risk using this website i've never seen. standard site of this size would be about 500,000 lines of code, roughly, maybe a little less. the code in healthcare.gov is about 5 million lines of code. and it has never been thoroughly tested. and so we know of a very low level access problem and meaning that somebody cou
on the ruling as it develops in just a moment. >>> welcome back. in other news this morning, the obama administration pleased with the progress of the healthcare.gov website, it says. but concern has been raised over the website's ability to hold up as those who haven't been able to enroll under obama care rush to do so now, before the looming deadline. a new health insurance marketplace, meanwhile, is allowing consumers to bypass healthcare.gov. gohealth is an online portal for finding health insurance coverage. clint jones is the ceo. and he joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> what can your website do? can it enroll people in plans? >> yes, we can. we've been live now just over a week, successfully helping consumers enroll in federal marketplace plans. >> okay. so there are others, healthsure, another private sector insurance group we had on, how long did it take you to get up and running? >> working on integration a little over a year, with cms and the federal government. so now we have the ability to tap into the federal data hub to help consumers get the subsidy inform
a substantive difference? >> look, i think any kind of -- any time you're criticizing the obama administration on their economic record, you've really got to take into account not just what they've done, but what they've tried to do. have they done enough to lower the unemployment rate to offset inequality? i don't think so. but have they tried to do the kinds of policies that would move in that direction? very much so. i'm thinking of the american jobs act. the minimum wage increase the president proposed back in the last state of the union. the fact they've been blocked along the way so many times by congress is really important if you're doing that kind of evaluation. >> and you have to make that point to so many other different topics. that's out there. look, we can't talk about all this without mentioning friday's jobs report. we saw unemployment fall to 7.0% for the first time since '08. best numbers in five years. what's your analysis of the report? >> well, it was a good report. sometimes we've talked about these declines in unemployment as being due to the fact that people left the la

yourself. check out how not to get hacked on "cnn money." >>> the obama care fiasco is down right absurd. the administration says the health care.gov website is fixed so logon and apply if -- if you're one of the first 50,000 people on the site. if not, get in line. and the government is going to send you an e-mail telling you a better time to sign up. imagine doing holiday shopping on a site like amazon. you mow what you want. you can't buy it until other people complete their purchases. would you stick around and wait for amazon to send you an e-mail waiting on you to come bark and buy something? how about your fantasy football team. see how you're fairing on a sunday afternoon, right? no, come back at midnight and the site will send you the e-mail. it kind of reminds me of this, remember this? logging on, verifying user name and password, connecting, that's what this feels like. what's the big deal? a little patience never hurt anyone, right? wrong. obama care is different. it won't work if young americans don't sign up. technology gives young people the luxury of instant everything.
after two-day debate of the obama care website. how well it is working and whether we should trust the administration's claims. one top senator has. the part of the system that is supposed to deliver customer information to insurance companies, you log in your information then they believe it to insurance companies to get you insurance, still does not work. that means many people may not be able to get coverage at all and others may think they have it and others will find out at the hospital or doctor's office that they don't. this could be a real problem for
the entire month of october. so people inside the administration are starting to feel more confident about that, and as you heard, at the tail end of the president's remarks in the speech here in washington, he went after republicans on obama care challenging them on these ideas of repeal and saying that republicans owe it to the american people to tell them what they're for when it comes to health care reform, not just being against the affordable care act. a couple things going on in the president's speech, rallying the base, also going after republicans laying markers down for the budget battles to come. >> that issue is becoming more and more talked about, income inequality, wealth disparity if you like, which is very marked in the united states. is there a sense in washington this could become a big election issue? >> i think it could be. one thing the president did mention and white house officials have said is that this is sort of a preview of some of what he'll be talking about in the state of the union speech. not only today is, he's going to be talking about when he gives his sta
, the mainstream media has been pretty tough on jay carney and this administration because, look, you can't avoid it. the fact is that the rollout of obama care has been a mess. the website was a disaster when it first came out. the promise, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan was clearly broken. and, you know, it's just too impossible to ignore. so, as i say, i think that horse is already out of the barn. >> so how are congressional democrats feeling this morning? are they still feeling kind of panicky as they have been the last couple of months about obama care? do they think things are getting better? >> well, clearly they are getting better. better is a relative word. the website is working a lot better in december than it was in october or november. i can't imagine that they're filled with great confidence about it, tuck er. on the other hand, all of these people in the senate were passed by a single vote. each one of those democrats up for re-election last year was a key, a single vote that decided whether or not obama care became a law or went down. they're kind of ono bomb ma ca
